Last Friday was an especially fun day of ownership of my 1992 Formula Red NSX 5-speed. I took it on a 300-mile round-trip drive with 6 friends including former Honda executive and book author Steve Lynch who brought his 2008 Honda S2000. We tackled the twisty roads of 8,200-foot Mount Lemmon near Tucson, Arizona. Here are a few pictures.

Pictured here are my 1994 Legend coupe, my 1992 NSX, Steve's 2008 S2000, Kelvin's 1993 NSX, and my 1994 Legend sedan.

On the way home from that drive, my NSX turned over 100,000 miles and I got it on video. Milestones are kind of a "thing" for me and I'm known to celebrate them on all my cars. My 1994 Legend LS 6-speed coupe has 533,000 and counting on the original drivetrain.

I felt it fitting to share a comprehensive look at the NSX's maintenance history since its production. I posted a spreadsheet sharing detail on every record that I have on the car. It's cost a little over $16,000 to maintain from new to 100,000 miles. Have a look for yourself if you're interested:

Onward to the next 100,000!

Congrats Tyson. How long before it catches your Legend in miles.:biggrin:

It was great to finally meet you in Palm Springs in late February.

Great stuff Tyson
Thanks Hass! I hope your NSX is doing well and you got that coolant hose taken care of!

Likewise, Les. I've only driven the NSX 20,000 miles in the 3.5 years I've had it, so at that rate it'll take me a really long time to break half a mill. Haha. Looking forward to continuing to work with you on NSXPO.

LOL on "only" 20K as most people here haven't put that many miles on theirs in that same time frame, 3.5 years. I put 17K the first year and about 15K a year since for 74K since August 2010 for a grand total of 134K on the clock.

Your next milestone will be 123,456.7:biggrin:
